Beautiful pubs, bars and unusual spots to watch the world cup in

Since the London 2012 Olympics there has been a huge void of that collective sporting fever that once consumed everything we did and talked about. But the World Cup tournament is finally here (Thursday 12 June to Sunday 13 July).

Whether you're a football fan or you can't stand the beautiful game, there's no denying it's an exciting time in the UK with people ready to pack out pubs and bars to watch the games.

But if, like us, you don't relish the idea of spending 2 hours in a rowdy, sweaty and rather smelly pub, you'll be glad to know there are actually a host of beautiful, cool and trendy spots to get your World Cup fix.

So block out your evenings - the UK is conveniently four hours ahead of Brazil, which means matches will kick off in our afternoons and evenings - and pick one or a few of these amazing spots to watch the biggest games on the planet...
